Adding Coolant...

So, I've added coolant 2x in the last month. Twice I've noticed after the truck is at running temp the reservoir is empty. I'm no mechanic so I don't know if anything is wrong. I've had no problems at all so far with my truck, no codes, no abnormal noises, doesn't run rough, temp gauge always reads normal.
Do I have a reason to worry?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

I have had to do the same, suspect the EGR cooler. Just got the delete kit in from FloPro today. Not wanting to take any chances with failure.

I am running a Mini Max, I was under the impression they 'shut off' the EGR?? Does this sound right?

Adding Coolant...

So I had the truck in for a warranty issue today. They did an oil change, and in the notes it says they found a coolant leak that requires more diagnosis. Would've been nice for the service manager to mention something about that rather than me just happen to figure it out!
That would explain my loss of coolant issue tho.

Even tho h&s shuts it off it can still leak coolant. If your not seeing any on the ground or white residue marks on the degas bottle it's most likely your egr. H&s just stops the valve from opening. Coolant is still running thru the coolers
